While in southern Mexico on vacation, she accidentally ate lunch with the Cartel. When snorkeling off the coast of Belize, she unintentionally swam with an 8 foot shark while he was eating. As a child, she spent her summers on a working cattle ranch, even though she’s a city slicker. There’s more, but why tell all! Michele is a Transition Guru who works with individuals and teams to raise their level of satisfaction in work and life. She does this by helping them reconnect with their passion and realign with their purpose. Prior to founding Life by Design, www.lifebydesign.guru, Michele served as an Associate Pastor for 22 years in Wimberley, Texas. At least a decade of that time was focused on leadership development and building community. She has a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Masters in Counseling. She is certified in DISC: Behavioral Analysis, as well as Coaching Mastery. She serves on the Board of Directors at the Mansfield Chamber and leads the Fort Worth collaboration circle for Plaid for Women. On her half-century birthday, Michele awoke unemployed, homeless, at the end of a 30 year marriage and better than she should have been. Michele loves empowering women to be all they are designed to be! Michele says, “The events in your life should not dictate the state of your life. The beautiful thing about life is you own it! So, do something with it.”
